GIVEAWAY - Make Create Express
It's been a long time since I ran a giveaway so I'm excited to share this lovely offering. It almost feels like I'm giving away TWO things because in less than two weeks the FREE Art is Magic: Make Create Express Online Creative Retreat takes place.
You're Invited. CLICK HERE to be added as a participant.
After the 27 lessons during the free weekend (July 6 & 7) we will continue in a paid year long course with another 27 lessons. And I've got a seat to giveaway for the year long experience. Keep reading to find out more about Art is Magic: Make Create Express and learn how to enter for that spot in the paid class.
From Student to Teacher
In the past, I've been a participant in the free Art is Magic online retreat, so when Galia asked me to be a teacher, I did not hesitate to say YES!!! It's a fun-filled super amazing line up of teachers and the weekend is always a blast. I've cleared my calendar for the weekend.
The last time I participated, I filled an entire journal in one weekend. That made me happy.
We gather in a private Facebook community for the weekend and each day 12 lessons are released. We get access to the lessons for 24 hours (unless you sign up for the year long experience, then you get the free lessons for the full year). I just imagine all of us sitting around the world making art together for two days -- GLORIOUS!!!
The Year Long Experience
There is something super powerful about showing up to make art every month. My current way of walking in the world includes experimentation in all things -- art is no exception. So I love a class that allows me to dabble in a variety of styles. I like when I can learn from some of my favorite teachers and get to meet new-to-me teachers.
In the year long experience, we basically get 52+ weeks worth of content. That's a year of making, creating, and expressing ourselves through art.
I had a lot of fun creating lessons for the retreat and the year long journey. My first lesson --during the free weekend is called "Tidbits Journal" and it's a functional creation that you'll hopefully use throughout the weekend.
My lesson in the year long journey is called "Painted Poetic Pages" and I share several ways to create powerful pages with sentiments you create with your inner muse.
Here are a couple of sneak peeks of my lessons. :-)

Thanks so much for this amazing opportunity! I shared on FB and Instagram ❤️. I think right now I'm drawn to painterly style art. I love trying all styles and techniques, and that's what calls to me.
6/27/2019 07:09:41 am
Thank you for the opportunity, I m more drawn to abstract art.. Maybe because i can't really draw/paint realistic.. hahah, but i feel abstract art can really set my imagination free, it will draw my mind into a place that is so outside of this world. word is hard to explain. hahaha
6/27/2019 07:59:10 am
Shared on Facebook, thank you for this opportunity
6/27/2019 10:08:35 am
Loving most art as quite new to painting - the painterly style is intriguing me at the moment and also abstracts. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
6/27/2019 10:21:31 am
Hi! I shared on Twitter but the link didn't work in FB ;/ I love art that has texture to it because I love engaging in art with more than my eyes
6/27/2019 10:24:53 am
Thanks for the chance to win a spot! I'm most drawn to abstract - paintings, collages.
6/27/2019 10:37:23 am
Thank you for the chance to win! Followed you on IG!
6/27/2019 10:44:54 am
I’ve fallen in love with intuitive abstraction. I adore sitting down with no idea what I’m going to create and coming up with these wonky and whimsical characters.
6/27/2019 11:09:27 am
Thanks for the chance to win a spot! I shared on FB and already follow you on instagram (commented as well). I am most drawn to painting faces and animals, love the emotion you can portray that way.
6/27/2019 11:15:21 am
I don’t know whether you want to know what art we are attracted to, or what art style we create. I’m attracted to medieval art (the colors! The gold!), Impressionism for the moods, sculpture for the awe and abstract for how it makes me feel.
6/27/2019 11:41:09 am
I am drawn to visual journalling and textile art as sometimes you just don't have the words - but art is art is art and always a thing of beauty.
6/27/2019 12:40:57 pm
Thank you for this opportunity to win a spot in this retreat. I make my own journals and am always looking for new techniques or ideas on how to fill them.
6/27/2019 12:47:00 pm
I am drawn to black & white - pen & ink, graphite, charcoal...but am trying to get out of my comfort zone and play with colour
6/27/2019 01:24:58 pm
I love bookmaking since it is so unique and colorful! I use whatever I have on hand.
6/27/2019 01:41:04 pm
Thanks for the chance! I’m most drawn to colorful, raw, messy art that makes me feel.
6/27/2019 02:16:19 pm
The kind of art I am most drawn to is anything that I can use paint with, thanks for the chance to win
6/27/2019 02:18:30 pm
Right now I'm into altered books I guess because it's fun for me to change something and turn it into my own. And mixed media because it's just so fun and I feel like a kid again when I'm playing around with all the different supplies

I'm fascinated with mixed media at the moment. I love pen and ink and block printing too.
6/27/2019 02:21:09 pm
This sounds so interesting. Winning a seat would mean I could redo lessons and enjoy the luxury.
6/27/2019 02:23:44 pm
6/27/2019 03:38:34 pm
Shared instagram, facebook business and public, and I am into mixed media. Hey Kiala glad you like my home state.
6/27/2019 03:54:22 pm
I really love mixed media - it's so much fun to mix collage, and stencils, and acrylics, and colored pencils to make one amazing art piece! That is my happy place! Thanks for offering a spot in this retreat! I also visited Instagram and left a comment for you there!
6/27/2019 06:30:25 pm

Thank you so much for this opportunity! I am most drawn to mixed media art. Right now, I'm really loving mixed media art journaling <3
6/27/2019 07:24:24 pm
I’d just love to win a spot in the classes. Thank you
6/27/2019 07:29:53 pm
Thanks for the chance! I love painting faces.
6/27/2019 08:06:20 pm
Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity. It would be such a great gift to win a spot. At the moment I am drawn to all things art related and dabble in a few different areas myself such as watercolour, mixed media and even sewing. This would be a great opportunity to further my journey. Crossing fingers and toes. Sending much love from South Africa xxx
6/27/2019 08:09:12 pm
Thanks again for the opportunity. I forgot to mention I shared your link, liked you on Instagram and am also interested in learning to bind my own books. I've made some traveller's notebooks but your books look amazing. Crossing fingers and toes. Sending much love from South Africa xxx
6/27/2019 11:59:06 pm
I am kind of drawn to mixed media.
6/28/2019 02:11:10 am
Thank you for the opportunity and I seem to be going more and more toward abstract and mixed media.
6/28/2019 04:23:24 am
I'd love to win a spot in this wonderful course. I loved last year. And I love that you're in it this year. I would love to see your offerings. I'll cherish the chance to join for another year of the Ongoing Retreat. THanks!
6/28/2019 04:26:46 am
Sorry, I forgot to tell you what art I'm drawn to. I love to study old masters like da Vinci and Rembrandt, and also the expressionist painters and avant-garde of early 20th century. Currently studying my countryman Piet Mondriaan works from the days just before his turn to abstract art. Love it!
6/28/2019 05:00:54 am
I would love to be part of this year long creative experience. I am drawn more to pen and ink, but love watercolour and art journaling. Grateful thanks for this opportunity.
6/28/2019 03:58:13 pm
Thanksf for the opportunity. I love mixed media and am just beginning to think about resin and pouring.
6/28/2019 06:09:56 pm
I love all art, but I paint faces mostly! Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot in this class ✌🏻 I shared on Facebook.
6/29/2019 06:11:22 am
